Forest Lodge Garden Centre is part of a family business that includes the adjacent attractions of Birdworld and Garden Style. Open 7 days a week from 9am to 5.30pm except for Sundays when it opens at 10.30am, this place has it all, a treasure trove of a departmental store specialising in garden plants, garden furniture, tools and equipment of course, but also selling tempting many quality household items, toys and books and a lot more besides. But it is the splendid restaurant that warrants special mention. Garden Centre opening times allow for late breakfast, lunch and early tea but you can dine at any time.
